Wolfforth City Council To Decide On A Trader Joe’s
Back in December of 2021, I told y'all about the possibility of a Trader Joe's coming to the area. Since then there hasn't really been an update, until now.
The decision all comes down to the Wolfforth City Council. On Monday during the city council meeting, it got brought up but they decided to table the motion for now.
Back in April, the project was turned down by the Wolfforth Planning and Zoning Commission.
“I think in general, the Planning and Zoning Commission didn’t feel like this was a location that they believed was the best for a development of this of this type,” said Randy Criswell, city manager of Wolfforth.
The $75 million project is by Larson Development Group and they are calling it “The Element at Wolfforth.” The group has been working on the project since 2021. The land will be mostly for residential purposes with a luxury apartment complex.
The Larson Group appealed and presented to the City Council on Monday. The main hurdle for the developers has been getting the zoning changed from commercial to mixed-use.
After an hour-long meeting at Wolfforth City Hall Monday night, the City Council did not vote. Criswell and Charles Addington have asked for more time to meet with Balzano and his team of developers before the City Council makes a final decision about the proposed development in the near future.
